Exploring Creation with Zoology 3
What separates people from apes? How can a Great Dane be related to a Chihuahua? Is there evidence that people and dinosaurs lived at the same time? What should you do if you encounter a bear? How can you tell if a snake is poisonous? Come find out answers to these questions and many, many more with Apologia's Exploring Creation with Zoology 3!
This third book in the zoology series takes students on a safari through jungles, deserts, forests, farms, and even their own backyard to explore, examine, and enjoy the enchanting creatures God designed to inhabit the terrain. Families will discover together the amazing animals from primates to parasites, kangaroos to caimans, and turtles to terrifying T-Rexes--but this safari doesn't end there! Students will also keep a record of where each animal is found on a map and learn to identify animal tracks.
As with all of the Apologia elementary books, students will continue the practice of narration, keeping a notebook of what they have learned, and enjoy many hands-on projects and experiments throughout the course. See our optional lab kit here.
About the Young Explorer Series:
When we decided to offer our customers a boxed curriculum, we knew that our eclectic approach to science needed a bit of fine-tuning, so we knew we needed Young Explorer, Jeannie Fulbright's elementary science program. Not only does this in-depth curriculum, with its gorgeous, full-color pictures and captivating, God-exalting text, sparkle in comparison to the mainstream, dry-bones science program, it utilizes what we believe is the most sensible method to teaching science, the immersion approach.
While other science programs, with their yearly superficial overviews, quickly become tedious as children encounter the repetitiveness of topic matters, the Young Explorer science immersion program will allow your family to enjoy the depth and riches that genuine science can give. Most home-taught children who enjoy science are being taught with a science immersion program.
Because this program utilizes a combination of the Charlotte Mason and classical methods, you can count on each Young Explorer book to acknowledge the evidence of Creation, have easy-to-follow lessons that are self-contained, include hands-on activities, and support National Standards of Science. Recommended for ages six through twelve, but written with a fourth-grader in mind, you may find that your older children will enjoy doing the coursework on their own, while younger, less confident readers will prefer parental involvement.
We encourage you to let your child choose the topic to study that captures your student’s interest. Your student can use the Young Explorer titles in any order since each book’s content stands alone. Because of the concept levels, the publisher suggests that Earth Science, Human Anatomy & Physiology, and Chemistry & Physics are better suited for upper elementary grades. However, younger students can certainly follow along and learn well if older siblings have progressed into these last three books. The Junior Notebooking Journals, for grades K-2, will allow them to absorb the concepts at their level.
If you would like a convenient, time-saving way to get nearly all of the materials you will need for the experiments, we now offer a lab kit! This lab kit is already assembled with virtually every non-household item the curriculum requires, so you won't have to go searching for elusive components.

I love how these book give are written at a level that multiple ages and grades can use them. I love that we can use them in any order that appeals to us. This is my favorite science cirriculum.
We have studied oceans, and now we are learning about land animals. We are looking forward to studying and learning together. This is an excellent curriculum.
We have loved every Apologia program we have done. This one was just fantastic. I loved the information given about the animals and the depth of understanding that my daughter had after completing this course. I recommend it for any little Zoologist out there!
This book has been so informative and fun for my children. Not only are they learning about God's creation and creatures, so am I and I love it! The information here is informative and interesting as my kids learn about animals close to home as well as those from across the world. It's amazing!!
You learn a lot about the animals and it had interesting facts.
